Simple file geodatabase (.gdb) ArcCat 10.3.1 XRAY for geodatabases reorder fields works. Same file when using ArcCatalog 10.5 fails with lock error.
It does not matter if I check or uncheck the box 'Delete Existing Table/Feature Class
This seems to be a 'bug' in 10.5 and teh X-RAY extension which is other wise very handy.
Both Computers have Microsoft Office with Excel installed.
